“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Having seen this place from the outside many times it was nice to go in and stay.
The ,,dark '' young manager was very helpful as I needed a boarding pass printing!
Would stay there again, when i'm working in the area.

We stayed for one night while visiting Hampton Court. The position of this hotel is it's main selling point, within easy walking distance of the palace and its gardens. Also a great spot to explore Bushy Park. Further pubs, restaurants, the river and individual & unique shops a 10 minute walk away.

In an old building it's difficult to have a large bedroom and ours was ok, although the bed was 'rickety' and not comfortable, especially for my 6ft2 husband. The bathroom was clean and fairly newly decorated however. There are only 5 parking spaces for the pub itself, and although there is on-street pay parking it is limited as this is a popular area. We didn't eat in the pub, but its bar had lots of atmosphere - classic English pub. Full English Breakfast was tasty and a great start to the day.

We stayed in the Kings Arms to attend a wedding locally and had a great stay. The rooms were clean and spacious and the food in the restaurant/bar area downstairs was very good. It's in a great location for the train station and sightseeing round the area but more importantly the staff were so helpful and polite. Nothing was too much trouble whichever staff member you asked. After we checked out and arriving home I realised that I had left a necklace behind in the room. Upon contacting the hotel they confirmed they had found it and arranged to have it sent back to me. I was over the moon. All in all a great stay at a great place. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed for 2 nights and cannot find a fault with our stay, the hotel and bar is full of character with very good food excellent staff and situated in an excellent place for our visit to Hampton Court Palace (for a concert) enjoyable walks to the local shops and the river, we would certainly stay again.

This pub with accommodation over looks Hampton Court Palace and the big bonus is the free parking out front . I stayed for one night the room was very small but adequate and the room was clean. The breakfast was good and the pub was very good with friendly staff. The train station was within walking distance about 5 minutes. The only downside for me was when checking out I handed over my debit card details to find next day I had 3 debits to my account. To be fair this was quickly rectified.

I go here 5 or 6 times a year. Sometimes just me and my wife, sometimes with children. (with children we have usually cycled or walked over from Bushy Park and sit outside)
I love that this is a pub. An old pub. No neo vernacular here.
The food is a mix of modern and traditional.
The staff are without exception friendly and relaxed.
If you are visiting Hampton Court Palace or Bushy Park this place is ideal.
If you are from outside the UK - this is a pub. Maintaining the things that made pubs what they were. Mismatched furniture, character and ambience

I visit this pub quite often after a stroll or cycle around Bushy Park. There's always a wide selection of quality drinks and the food has always been of excellent quality and taste with generous portions. If something isn't quite right (everyone makes mistakes sometimes) the friendly, chatty staff will do all they can to make it right for you - you just need to ask.

It's especially nice in the winter - drop in after a walk in the cold grounds of Hampton Court or Bushy Park and warm up by one of the roaring fires with a nice pint and bite to eat.

If you're looking for a hip and trendy bar, this isn't the place for you - it's circa 300 years old (I believe) but is a wonderful place to relax and catch up with friends.
